Join our Telegram channel (50,000+ subscribers) for daily market analysis & trading tips: t.me/synapsetrading

Last week, as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continued, we continued to ride on the wave of our existing positions. This includes being bearish on stocks and bullish on commodities. In this week’s analysis, we compare the different sectors and look at a long-term strategic approach to position our portfolio for the upcoming weeks/months.

We cover 3 main markets with a total of 200+ counters, so we will never run out of trading opportunities:

By covering a broad range of markets, we can focus our attention (and capital) on whichever market currently gives the best returns.

Forex Market Highlights

Trading Signals Strength 020322

On the forex front, we have Gold and Bitcoin as the strongest performers, which is not surprising during these risk-off times.

AUD, NZD and CAD are commodity exporters, so they are bullish as well.

At the bottom we have GBP and EUR who are likely to be most affected by the economic fallout and the situation in Europe.


Daily Trading Signals Eur 100322

I’ll be sharing 4 long-term weekly charts below of the EUR, which all show bearishness of the EUR in the long run. You can use these to accumulate short positions when there are pullbacks.


Trading Signals EURAUD 020322

Trading Signals EURUSD 020322

EURAUD, EURCAD, EURJPY (not shown), EURUSD (not shown)


Trading Signals USDRUB 280222

USD appreciating almost 50% against the Russian Ruble within the past few days.


Commodities Market Highlights

Daily Trading Signals Market Relative Strength 310122

Comparison of all asset classes since the start of this year, we can see that not all are positive.

GCC is the top performer by a wider margin. ???

Daily Trading Signals Commodities 100322

On the commodities front, I have a huge chunk of my portfolio in commodities, mostly GCC, with additional positions in PALL and PPLT.

GCC is the general commodities index with a mix of energy, metals, agriculture, etc.

PALL is an ETF for Palladium, which has gone up a lot since Russia is a major exporter of it.
PPLT is an ETF for Platinum, another important metal.

With the ongoing conflict and inflation, commodities are likely to continue climbing higher.

Something I am looking at next is ICLN, an ETF for renewable energy.

Trading Signals PALL 020322

PALL is up 70+% from its lows in Dec 2021, when it was one of the worst performers for that year.


Trading Signals Palladium And Platinum 270222

I have been bullish on Palladium and Platinum since late last year, and they have gone up 20-50% since the bottom.


Trading Signals GCC 020322

GCC is up about 27% from the recent swing lows.


Stock Market Highlights

Daily Trading Signals Stocks 100322
Now, let’s move on to stocks.

Stocks have been quite volatile, so I only have about 10% weightage in my portfolio currently, and I’m planning to selectively add more.

The general indices like the S&P 500, NASDAQ, Dow Jones seem pretty bearish, so instead of buying those, I am buying those high growth stock ETFs which have been sold down a lot, such as ARKK and ARKG.

The Metaverse play seems to have died down a bit, so I’m not planning to add more to my Metaverse ETF (META).

I’m planning to add to these 2 ETFs today, or some time this week:

CIBR- An ETF on cybersecurity

PPA – An ETF on aerospace and defense

With more global conflicts looming in the future, these 2 ETFs have much potential.

Trading Signals US100 030322

NASDAQ 100 (US 100) – Prices are currently below all the moving averages, will it be able to get back above? (Sell signal based on chart.)


Trading Signals CIBR ETF 030322

In the last sell-down, the First Trust NASDAQ Cybersecurity ETF (CIBR) only corrected about 20%, and it looks like it recently broke out of a large bull flag.


Trading Signals GRAB 040322

Wow GRAB dropped 37% in one day!


Trading Signals ICLN 020322

The iShares S&P Global Clean Energy Index Fund (ICLN) has been battered down about 50% in the last sell-down, but is starting to show signs of buying recently.


Trading Signals PPA ETF 030322

A similar-looking bull flag pattern on the Invesco Aerospace & Defense ETF (PPA), which recently brought it to new ATHs.


Crypto Market Highlights

Trading Signals Crypto Total Market Caps 030322

With BTC and ETH looking to stage a bullish reversal, let’s take a look at the weekly chart of the Crypto Total Market Cap. This is an aggregate index of all the different crypto tokens.

It is an overall uptrend channel, with both corrections to the channel bottom approximating 50%, and currently it is at the channel bottom.

Could this be the start of the next big bull run?


Trading Signals BTC 010322

Following up on Bitcoin (BTCUSD), it had an incredible surge of almost 15% yesterday! ????


Trading Signals BTC 2 010322

Similarly for Ethereum (ETHUSD)
